Melt Your "Double Chin" With Kybella
Kybella is the first and only FDA-approved non-surgical treatment that contours and improves the appearance of adult submental fullness or "double chin." Injected into the fat beneath your chin, Kybella destroys the fat cells in as little as 15-20 minutes. Many patients will notice visible contouring of their chin profile in 2-4 treatments, although some patients can require upt to 6 treatments for optimal results. Once you achieve your optimal chin profile, you will not need to be treated with Kybella again. See our holiday Kybella Special for the month of November here!

Over the past few years, you may have noticed more physicians' offices transitioning from paper charts to Electronic Health Records, providing you with a clinical summary of your visit, and even offering to set you up with a login to access their "Patient Portal" site. HealthySkin is no exception, and as of November 2013, we began offering our patients access to our very own Patient Portal.
The creation of patient portals began with the provisions of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 which created a program for eligble professionals, hospitals and critical access hospitals who participate in Medicare and Medicaid programs to "participate in a voluntary program to adopt and demonstrate meaningful use of certified electronic health record (EHR) technology [Federal Register/Vol. 75, No.144/Wednesday, July 28, 2010/Rules and Regulations/page 44314]." This program is now commonly referred to by healthcare workers as "Meaningful Use", and it will become mandatory for all eligible professionals and hospitals who participate in Medicare and Medicaid programs to participate in the Meaningful Use program by January 1, 2015.
A large driving force behind Meaningful Use is to improve patient care outcomes by creating an improved healthcare infrastructure via improved healthcare records and provider-to-provider communications, and by involving patients more directly in their healthcare. Patient Portals were designed with the goal of giving patients access to their healthcare records with the ability to review and update their healthcare information. From the privacy of your home through our HIPAA compliant secure portal, you can view: the medications we have on record for you, the results of lab tests we ordered, any allergies we have listed for you, as well as allowing you to update your preferred pharmacy information and past medical history including previous skin diseases. Not all information on the portal can be changed by patients - some sections will require you to update your information at your next visit with HealthySkin. For complete details, please click here for our Patient Portal Guide. Use of the Patient Portal is entirely up to you, and you can choose to enable or disable the portal at any time.
Ultimately, Meaningful Use will pave the way for a futuristic healthcare model that will enable your healthcare providers and you to have access to your most current and accurate healthcare information when you need it most, whether you are at home or across the country. Our Patient Portal is a step towards that future, and we are pleased to be able to offer it to all patients of HealthySkin.
Looking for a solution to your dry, discolored, or uneven skin that's not going to take a lot of time? Medical chemical facial peels utilize a variety of acids to remove the upper layers of aged and sun damaged skin through exfoliation. Not all chemical peels produce visible flaking or "shedding" of the skin; however, all chemical peels produce exfoliation. The result is new fresh skin that is smoother and softer with a healthy glow. Learn more about the benefits of the chemical peels avaialble at HealthySkin here.
